This report presents the preliminary findings of the evaluation of the Step-Down programme provided by Core Assets in Birmingham.

The evaluation aims to investigate whether and how the project supports the young person in moving from a residential home to a stable foster care placement successfully for a minimum of a year. It also considers what works well and what works less well in making, stabilising and sustaining this move and what outcomes are achieved for young people.
